Thanks for visiting my blog. First of all..I can't believe that I am even typing a blog...Geez...whats a blog anyway?

Well....Here goes.... Is beauty really only skin deep? I don't know about alot of you here, so I can only reflect upon my experience.

I have meant some truely beautiful people here. Beautiful for many reasons. Peoples perspectives here interest me.

Beauty has been defined here in so many ways...Great eyes, great ass, nice legs, Sweet breasts, Nice smile, great teeth, sexy hands...The list is endless and personal I suppose. We all have our own thing and we've probably all heard the same things here...

I guess sometimes, it would be nice, to actually have someone take a look on the inside of a person once in awhile. Look past the eyes, the ass, the breasts..and take interest in what lurks beneath the body.

Men...I know you are visual. Women are too. We like it when you clean up, shave up, pluck up smell good.... But we look further. We want personality, charm, charisma... We want honesty, integrity and truthfullness. Well, some of us do anyway...
For the ones that dont....Just how many many do you plan to sleep with in your lifetime? LOL...

So..I guess what I really want to say here is this. I have chatted, talked, exchanged photos, meant for coffee, had a few drinks, went dancing, checked out a flick or two, watched a few sunsets with a few people here....I've meant some good ones.

There are a and women...and you know who you are...that realize that beauty comes in many packages. Many variations. Many styles.

For those of you that havent figured that out have a long journey ahead. You too will grow older, have stress in your life, face responsibility, get wrinkles, need alittle extra sleep and realize that you can't have sex with everyone in cyberland. lol... or that you don't want too... friends....take a long look at whats inside a person. Realize it will be there for the long haul. That will be the person that you fall in love with.

I for one am very glad people look beyond the shell. To me real beauty comes from within. I've seen some attractive people that are ugly and some not so attractive people that are beautiful.

A very nice start to your blogging if I may say so.

I'm new here, and yours is the first blog I read. I would like to say that it is very well written. And I have to say that I agree 100%. You only find true beauty after you have looked deep inside a persons heart.

take care,

Of course beauty is only skin deep. My problem has been I have the looks (I'm told) but I was always too shy or frightened of not 'performing'. Now I wish I was younger and could start again.

I agree Christinegirl! Very well written I totally agree that beauty is superficial at best! The true evaluation of a person is what you get from conversation and the interaction by meeting and exchanging of information and getting to know the inner person. I have seen some truly beautiful people to look at but they are soooo shallow intellectually!

all i can add to all this is, when i was younger and not that much younger than i am now, i thought looks were the most important thing but at this point in my life personality is running neck and neck with looks and about to take the lead. this is not to say that i would go with a person that i found completely unattractive physically, but for me, physical attraction is starting to run a close second to personality.

True, but you still need to be physically attracted to someone. If you're not, you probably never will be.

After speaking to a few friends, all over the age of 70, on the subject, not one said.." I wished I had married a better looking spouse".....however several DID say the wished they had married the "bad" girl instead of the "good" girl...go figure..

Yes, well said Christinegirl. In my opinion also, beauty comes in many different packages. And I also believe that you must have some physical attraction.

And consider this, people's attitude and personal circumstances often define how "beautiful" they are... Several years ago, I was in a LTR with a gal that had a "tough" couple of years, she was stressed a lot; money was tight for her, kids were somewhat of a problem, and she had some medical problems.

My point is that as time went on, I discovered that when she WAS stressed, her body language was tense, her face was "frowned", (if that's a word), and she was not as "pretty". However, if I walked over to her, held her closely, touched her or rubbed her back for a few minutes, she would relax, and I could see the tension leave her.

She would almost purr as I massaged her back. The look in her eyes as I gave comfort is a good definition of beauty. So there you go, happiness can be beautiful and is not a physical trait...

To define beauty as superb body parts is superficial. To watch this girl's facial expression change from tight or pinched to a look of happiness was a truly "beautiful" experience...
